7

## To solve the equation x^2 - 98 = 0, we need to isolate x.

First, add 98 to both sides of the equation:

x^2 = 98

Next, take the square root of both sides to find the value of x:

x = √98

Simplifying the square root of 98, we get:

x = √(49 * 2)

Breaking down the square root into two separate square roots:

x = √49 * √2

Since the square root of 49 is 7:

x = 7 * √2

So, x is equal to 7 multiplied by the square root of 2.
